    How did you come by your user name?


    This may have already been done, and if so, humor me. I was wondering how each of us came by their user name for the board? There are some interesting ones out there, and I am new to the board. If anyone wants to share, I would be really interested.

    How I got my name: I bought a cd named WINTER SOLSTICE ON ICE. Apparently it was a production that was done for t.v. and I have yet to find it on tape. Anyway, as I was reading the information for my cool cd, it was describing how they Zambonied part of a glacier for one of the productions and skated on it. I always thought that was one of the neatest things that I had ever heard of. From then on I want to skate on a glacier. A little romantic I know, but still...
    And, when I am not skating, sewing costumes, or working, I play Everquest. You can name your characters, and when you get to a certain level, you get a last name. All of mine have the last name of Glacierskater, and the first names have to do with some form of precipitation, like Rheiynn, or Hydra, or Glacier. Anyway, that's me. Please share something about yourself if you are so inclined. MATHMAN, that's a direct invitation

    Glacierskater:

    Interesting name. My user name is not quite so romantic as yours, but involves my initials - LAD and skater - as I figure skated for many years; therefore - Ladskater. Seems to fit!

    How did you come by your user-name?


    Interesting topic.I chose the user-name "John King",because it is easier for people to spell or pronounce than my real name:John Arvindale Gopwe Diddlepecker-umpertwinkle-whimpletucker-hicklebottom-mickelbercky-shomshoe-shiptwister III,Esquire.

    Ummm, John. Shouldn't you have put "Lord" in front of your real name? :lol:


    Mine is boring. Somebody at the USFSA site was using my name (they aren't registered as of yet and this was the first discussion board I ever participated in) so I quickly changed mine so there would be no confusion. I'm a skater, and I was born in 1964. Yawn.......

    I'm 'icedtea' on other boards, but for some techno- reason couldn't register that name here....so-o-o since I learned how to fly in 2002, I chose Aloft02 (now they've come out with a toilet paper with my name <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/embarassed.gif ALT=":o"> - no relation.)

    Re: How did you come by your user name?


    I'm afraid mine's pretty boring, too, Glacierskater. I am a mathematician (research interests: algebraic topology, singularities of complex manifolds, geometric techniques in cosmology).

    The 444 means absolutely nothing. I tried to register as Mathman, but for some reason I couldn't. Maybe it was already taken by a global user. The I tried to register as Mathman237. 2, 3 and 7 are the first three "Euclidean primes," which is a subject that I was studying at that time. (We found all Euclidean primes up to two billion, beating the old record of a mere 43,000.)

    Why does anyone care what the 3,485,843rd Euclidean prime is? They don't. Oh, well.

    Anyway, that didn't work either. So by now I'm mad, so I just hit any old key. It happened to be the 4.

    So, well, that's about it.

    MM

    PS. Aloft, can you really fly? Wow! Do you own your own plane?

    I landed my first double loop in 2002. And when you say it "two-loop" it sounds a little bit like tulip (humor me here) which is a flower I really like, and I also graduated high school in 2002. Consequently, I had to quit skating, because there was no ice surface in my college town and my parents quit paying for the ice time anyway. Figure skating is a little too expensive for this college student's budget, so probably the only times I will ever land a double loop all occured in 2002. The loop was always my favorite jump, and it was also the first (and only) double I ever landed.

    Nice straight lines, mathman, but heavens no, I can't afford a plane!

    Re: How did you come by your user name?


    My user name relates to part of my profession. I make beads using all sorts of materials. Some of them I use myself in my own jewelry creations, and many of them are custom made for other jewelry artists. As for *blue*, I just have a "thing" for the color, :lol: . My user name is easy to say and remember, and I don't have to strain my fingers typing it out. :rollin:

    My best friend in grade 10 gave me my name. She was really into the 60's, especially hippies. I swear she WAS a hippie in a previous life. She had a hippie name and felt that I should have one too. So one day, she handed me this paper covered in swirls and neat designs with the name Starshine Xavier in the centre. So from that day on, I've been Starshine Xavier.
